Campus On The Greens – Asia’s only knowledge conference for golf course superintendents by superintendents is on the cards for a terrific landmark event this year.
Campus On The Greens 2013 will be hosted by the Indonesian Golf Course Superintendents Association (ASPGI) on November 3 – 5 in Jakarta, Indonesia.
“We are proud to host Campus On The Greens in Indonesia and we are confident that this event will do a lot of good for all practicing superintendents throughout the region,” said Rukadi, President of ASPGI.
In announcing the event, Mike Sebastian, chief executive officer of the Asia Pacific Golf Group, the owner and producer of the conference said, “We are naturally elated with the news that the ASPGI has come on board as the host for this important ground-breaking conference. It is solid proof that there is a genuine need for quality education and training programmes for practising superintendents in the region.”
Campus On The Greens will precede the 2013 Asia Pacific Golf Summit which will also be staged in Jakarta on November 5 – 7.
Commenting on the developments, James G. Prusa, Director, Golf Courses and Laboratory at Seoul’s Sky72 Golf and Programme Director for Campus On The Greens said, “This is validation indeed for all the good work that has been done over the past five years. I am really proud that the ASPGI has recognized the value of this event and is fully supporting this milestone event to the fullest.”
A long-time veteran of Indonesian golf course agronomy, Brad Burgess, managing director of Sports Turf Solution was quick to chip in by declaring, “ASPGI is a very serious and dedicated organization committed to providing proper training and education for its members and its decision to work hand in hand with the Campus On the Greens is indeed a very positive development and will go a long way towards further enhancing the development of superintendents in general throughout the region.”
James Prusa has formed a special programme committee to draw up a content-rich conference that will be very specific in its communications objectives and it will be complemented by sessions that will be conducted on the field. “Cengkareng Golf Club is proud to be associated with Campus On the Greens and we will be making special arrangements for delegates to attend hands-on field demonstrations on our golf course which will serve as a living laboratory for the superintendents,” said Kurt Michelsen, general manager of the club.
Programme details will be available on May 15 and will be announced on the main conference web site at www.golfconference.org
